Local recruitment firm moves into newly refurbished Leeds offices

Mackenzie Stuart takes 5,463 sq ft at 76 Wellington Place 

March 13, 2019

A Leeds based recruitment consultant has taken occupation of refurbished office space at 76 Wellington Street in the city centre.                                       

Mackenzie Stuart has taken the entire fifth floor penthouse suite comprising 5,463 sq ft from the Ardstone Regional Office Fund (AROF). This new letting follows hot on the heels of Home Group’s commitment to extend its occupation in the building

The landlord has recently completed a comprehensive refurbishment of the building’s fourth and fifth floors together with all common areas, providing very contemporary space using high quality finishes throughout.

Michael Cecil, head of Asset Management at Ardstone Capital said: “We are pleased that the decision to undertake a high-quality refurbishment has resulted in securing Mackenzie Stuart as a tenant so soon after completion of the works. Hopefully the strong interest in the refurbished 4th floor will also ensure it is occupied before too long.”

Richard Thornton, from joint letting agent JLL, added: “The letting to Mackenzie Stuart is great news for the building. We now only have two refurbished suites available which we expect to readily let given current levels of enquiries with occupiers very much preferring high quality accommodation.”

Duncan Senior, from joint letting agent at WSB, concluded: “AROF’s commitment to this level of investment demonstrates its confidence in the building and the Leeds office market.”

76 Wellington Place provides 40,000 sq. ft of grade A office space over six floors and is home to Schofield Sweeney, Aldermore Bank, Home Group Ltd and Paragon. AROF is a programmatic venture funded by clients of CBRE Global Investment Partners (CBRE GIP).

JLL and WSB are letting agents for the office scheme.
